Caller: 22-year old female calling on behalf of 21-year-old friend
Problem: Cocaine addiction
Seeking: Inpatient recovery program with possible interventionist
Reason(s): Caller is worried about her lifelong friend’s addiction to cocaine. According to the caller, her friend had a relatively good upbringing and was even considered a high-performing student. She stated that once her friend enrolled in college, something changed, going on to say, “Once she got accepted into college, things changed for her. She started taking psychedelics and was so wrapped up in that entire scene that it turned her onto harder drugs. The friend stated that the eventual drug of choice became cocaine, which led to a severe addiction. She said, “It got to the point where she was taking things from people on the streets, without knowing what she was putting into her body, which is crazy and shows she has a genuine problem.” The long time friend stated that she has tried to address the issue multiple times but does not feel as though she is getting through to her friend. She is interested in learning more about interventions and wants to discuss possible treatment options and arrange a visit from a professional interventionist. The caller is interested in a recovery program that is a considerable distance removed from their current surroundings. She stated, “I think it is good for all parties involved to take a break from each other, and I do believe that in another state, she would have a better chance at recovery.” Arranged for a discussion with an interventionist and gave a list of three recovery programs that were at least 100 miles removed from their current location.
